Salida Council for the Arts will award scholarships up to two outstanding, college-bound Salida-area students in the amount of $1,000 each or $2,000 in the event of there being only one qualified applicant. Those who are eligible are students attending Salida High School, as well as students in non-traditional programs or home-schooled students who plan to pursue studies in a creative discipline as a full-time student at an accredited college or institution. Creative disciplines may include, but are not limited to: Architecture, Design, Fine Arts, Multimedia, Writing, Communication, Performing Arts, Culinary Arts.
Scholarship recipients must provide official documentation showing enrollment in an accredited college or institution to SCFTA before funds will be awarded. A copy may be sent to email@example.com
The Salida Council for the Arts invites all Salida artists and creatives to apply for the upcoming Community Grants. Grants of up to $500 each are open to applicants seeking funding for local arts and cultural
based projects. Check back for the next grant application period.
Applicants may be individuals or organizations. Residency in Salida is not required, but the project must have a definable connection to the Salida Community and be supportive of the Council’s Mission to enrich the cultural life of our community by nurturing and supporting excellence in the arts; to increase the community’s awareness of and appreciation for the arts; to promote and encourage arts education; and to serve as liaison between the arts, businesses, government and educational institutions.
These grants are for a specific creative project and not for an artist’s or arts organization’s operating budget. Use your imagination to create a project that will inspire, edify, and/or entertain the Salida community.
